(37) Joshua's last words

Many years passed, and
God had given Israelites rest from all the surrounded enemies.
Joshua, at the end of his life, called all the members of Israel.
"You have witnessed everything God has done for you.
God fights for you as he promised.
God also have allotted to you as an inheritance all the land,
from Jordan River to Mediterranean Sea.
Now, be extra careful to follow all the instructions
in the book of the Law.
and make sure you do not associate with other people
in the land and their gods.
If you do not want to serve God who led us out of Egypt and fought for us,
then choose now whom you will serve!
As for me and my family, we will serve God our Lord."
After this speech, Joshua died at the age of 110.
Israel served God throughout the lifetime of Joshua..
